institutions and remove political instanceincent" that is all code word for climate science for it stop funding climate science. romney himself says there is no scientific consensus so we should support more debate and investigation within the scientific community, except no action but to make problems worse. what about democrats? they conceded there is a problem and advocate that we work toward a problem -- program to set limits with other emerging powers. but that's it. no action. in fact, obama has emphasized, we have to work hard to gain when because 100 years of energy independence by exploiting domestic or canadian resources by fracking and other elaborate technologies. it does not ask what the world would look like in 100 years. so there are differences. the differences are, basically, about how enthusiasticallygs' sd the cliff.

[meowing] [laughter] [meowing] [laughter] i don't know what that is. but anyway, what i'm doing here, gang, is what? i'm rubbing electrons from here on here. and you know why? it turns out every substance-- it's holding its electrons, yeah? how many say, "oh, all substances must hold their electrons with just the same force"? coincidence of coincidences. no way. that's not true. different things will hold electrons with more force than others. and guess what doesn't hold electrons very good? it begins with f, ends with r. i got a u in the middle, try it. fur. fur. or your hair. okay. guess what holds electrons very nicely? it begins with r, ends with u-b-b-e-r. rubber. rubber, okay? and so when i take the rubber and i scrape it against the fur, what am i doing? i rub electrons from the fur onto the rod. now, the rod has more electrons than before. you, people at front row, can y

science and technology, and even the ability to socialize with each other- we are more socially mature than most people that i meet outside of america. but i think we are far behind our advancement in technoscience and technology when it comes to social maturity- perceiving what society should be, what a human being is. i think we have exaggerations, some of us, of what a human being is and what we should expect of a human being- exaggerations- and some of us poorly estimate the value of human beings. so we are not- to me, we are not the greatest society when it comes to social maturity. >> you know, that's one of the problems we've wrestled with in this class over and over again, because we hear such beautiful statements of love and caring and equality and justice coming from deeply religious people, and it's like you say, you know, somehow we haven't matured to a level that even respects the religions we profess. i'm just curious, in terms of your understanding of islam, how does that, in your own life, lend itself to making us better- better human beings? >> well, i don't wan

between individuals, groups, nations, even between animals or microbes? from the social sciences to biology, robotics and beyond, the answer is yes. welcome to game theory. [ overlapping conversation ] >> so, mr. blue, we got you dead to rights. picked you and mr. white up not a half a block from the scene of the robbery. >> we were out buying groceries. >> we were out buying groceries. >> is that where you got this little item? >> that? that doesn't prove a thing. >> doesn't prove anything. >> really? now, what do you think your friend blue will say about that? >> he won't talk. he better not. >> look, i'm going to lay it out for you: you talk, we let you go. >> both: no jail time? >> nada. zip. >> what happens to white? >> what happens to blue? >> he gets 90 days. >> what if he talks and i don't? >> well, then he walks and you get 90 days. >> what if he rats on me and i rat him? >> you both get 60 days. >> both: what if neither one of us talks? >> then it's a light sentence: you both do 30 days. but you need to ask yourself: how much do you trust your buddy? >> both: okay, he did
